But what else can you feel? NOTHING. You’re anxious and you hate your work, but you have to keep working and pulling down the tall dollars, why? Because that way you can live in the future instead of the present. You can support your boyfriend and get your babies and pay off your massive school loans. Do you see what’s happening? You’re going from what your parents want to what your boyfriend wants. You’re serving the random jackasses at the party. The random jackasses will continue to be impressed with you, and your beloved boyfriend won’t have to alter his (creative? free and easy?) career path one iota. You are the fucking captain of this ship, intimidating and impressive and special. YOU ARE A GOD.
Read the whole thing.
Stop serving the random jackasses at the party. Be the captain.
Next Saturday, 9/20, at 1pm, I’ll be a panelist at Rose City Comic Con talking about internet comments! It’s funny because I’m terrible at public speaking, and also because the other panelists are legit web-famous people.So if you’re going to be at RCCC and want to see me stammer and sneak drinks from a flask on stage, please come!
October Challenge, or Elinorjo Becomes One Healthy Broad.
Every year I do an October Challenge, in which I go the whole month without sweets or treats. This year I’m making it a September/October challenge. Sunday I ate as much pizza as my lil body could take, and now I’m on day two of clean livin’. I’m also going to make a point to not drink anything two nights a week (that is hard for me - I like at least one large glass of wine when I’m watching my stories) and not buying lunch out as often (sidebar: my credit card needs a breather).
Oh, and another live-your-best-life update: I quit smoking 16 days ago and this time it’s sticking. It helps that I’ve got a hot new fella who is a non-smoker, I gotta admit, but it’s also for me - smoking is really gross, and I know that it is.
So by Halloween I’m basically going to be Jillian Michaels. Watch out!
